Show Notes for Saturday June 8 & Sunday June 9, 2019

Today we visit with Melissa Henson from the Parents Television Council about a show that Netflix has put out about a young person who commits suicide. The aftermath of this program has led to many cases of young people taking their own life. The PTC is urging Netflix to remove the show.

The Parents Television Council has been urging Netflix to pull its teen-targeted suicide drama, “13 Reasons Why” from its platform over concerns about the content's impact on kids. Now, new research confirms our worst fears about the program:

According to the National Institutes of Health, “The Netflix show ‘13 Reasons Why’ was associated with a 28.9% increase in suicide rates among U.S. youth ages 10-17 in the month (April 2017) following the show's release.”

WEIRD NEWS: Brought to you by
The Clay County Sheriff’s Office in Florida said that officials thwarted a would-be smuggler’s attempt at sneaking six McDonald’s sandwiches and a tube of Grizzly chewing tobacco into the department’s detention facility. The confiscated items were discovered inside of a trash can. According to a Twitter post, law enforcement believes “these items were hidden in our lobby trash can by a visitor for our inmate crews.” The message added, “Fortunately, daily inspections intercepted these items.” The stash included cheeseburgers and McChicken sandwiches. Reps for the CCSO said, “Though cheeseburgers and tobacco aren’t the worst things ever, just imagine if a search wasn’t done and something much worse was brought inside. The compromise of security inside our facility is not something we take lightly.” Officials have not yet announced if anyone has been caught or charged in relation to the failed stunt. (

A Parkersburg High School principal accused of plagiarizing a graduation speech issued a statement on Facebook Wednesday, saying his mistake was in not citing his sources and it was not his intent to copy someone else’s work. Critics say the speech given by Principal Kenny DeMoss at Parkersburg High School’s May 23rd graduation ceremony was largely the same as a speech given by actor Ashton Kutcher in 2013 at the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards. Parkersburg High School graduate Abby Smith posted a video to YouTube splicing DeMoss’ graduation speech with Kutcher’s speech. The two speeches use similar phrases and wording throughout, as well as the same format, and while parts of the principal’s speech do differ, other phrases are word-for-word the same. DeMoss said he was upset the focus from last week’s graduation had shifted from the accomplishments of his students to his words during the ceremony. Though DeMoss said he takes the blame for not citing his sources, he believes there would have been too many citations to fit within the format of the graduation ceremony and his closing address. (
